I get the feeling that the DNF picture was a tongue-in-cheek reference to their own much-delayed Portal 2 and Ep. 3.

Right now, the only reason I care about Valve at all is Steam. They haven't made a game worth buying to me since the Orange Box came out in 2007. It's well past the time that they should have announced Episode 3, and I'm rapidly losing faith in them. At this rate, it'll take even longer to come out than HL2 itself did.
